Introducing Beautycounter: Putting the Truth Back In Beauty Products

Introducing Beautycounter Putting the Truth Back In Beauty Products Groovy Green Livin

A wide assortment of beauty products fill an entire drawer in my bathroom. I’m always on the lookout for new, safe, non-toxic beauty products. I was first introduced to Beautycounter at Shiftcon two years ago. After trying out a few of their products I was intrigued. The Every Day AM Hydrating Cream was my first addiction. Over the past two years I’ve spent some time getting to know this company and the deeper I dig the more I like what I’m uncovering. I have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll be hearing a lot more about Beautycounter in the near future. Putting the Truth...

How to Clean Your Microwave With a Bowl of Vinegar

How to Clean Your Microwave with a Bowl of Vinegar Groovy Green Livin

My microwave is (now was) a complete disaster. We don’t use it very often, but when we do everything seems to explode. And it’s generally not a mini explosion. I’m talking a big, powerful explosion that leaves sauce or grease everywhere. Over the years we’ve all tried to keep up. Each person is responsible for wiping out the microwave after warming or cooking something. That strategy worked for a while, but then the build up couldn’t be stopped. The inside of the microwave started to look like a war zone. It got to the point where it was better to never...

One Simple Question to Ask Your Children

One Question to Ask Your Child Groovy Green Livin

This post is created in partnership with Stonyfield as part of their YoGetter ambassador program. All opinions are always my own. Have you ever asked your children this simple question: How can I help you feel loved? The question was first raised in a Babble article, The One Question You Should Ask Your Child Tonight. Although a simple question, it has the potential to unleash so many thoughts and emotions. “Love isn’t just a word; it’s an action” How do you think your kids will answer it? A few years ago I was forced to think about a somewhat similar question at home. At...
